Last week a group of our wonderful WT campers had a great time exploring the Lava Beds National Monument.   What is extra unique about the Lava Beds, is that they are actually GIGANTIC underground caves that were made many years ago by hot flowing Lava.  With each cave we ventured into, one thing became clear.  Without light, we could and would get very lost.

The same is true of life without Christ.  Without Christ and His Word, we easily get lost.  We lose touch with the correct course, and often wander where we should not go. Regarding this subject, Christ said in John 8:12, … “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  And in Psalms 119:105  it says, “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” NIV

These spiritual analogies were shared right along with the adventure of cave exploration.  Though this was just a one day trip, it made an impact.  By the end of the week, I am happy to say, we had a few campers that chose the light of Christ to guide them for the rest of their days!

As the last note of the song rang out, you could hear the fire crackling, while a calm breeze whistled through the trees.  Sitting in the dusk of evening, campfire was just about finished when the worship leader gave an invitation for prayer and salvation for all that wanted to receive.  What once was a still, solemn crowd, now began to move.   With open hearts, campers quickly spread out around the campfire circle, finding leaders to pray with.  Soon lines formed by each prayer partner and defenses fell as the healer of every hurt showed up in all His majesty.

There will be 34 nights filled with campfire evenings at Wilderness Trails this summer.  Every one will have the gospel shared; so moments like these can change hearts and lives forever.
